(Relaxnews) – Mark your calendars, ice cream lovers, because major brands will be competing for your taste buds this month.

On April 8, Ben & Jerry’s will be hosting its 35th annual Free Cone Day at participating Scoop Shops around the world.

The occasion will also be used to promote a trio of new flavors like Salted Caramel Blondie, ‘Hazed & Confused,’ made with hazelnut and chocolate ice creams and fudge chips, and Cotton Candy.

Then, from April 22 to 24, Baskin-Robbins in the US will be hosting its own Scoop Fest, selling a single scoop for $1, a double scoop for $2 and a triple scoop for $3.

You’re welcome.
